Micah in the basin

Uploaded: November 23, 2004


Just a soft pretty portrait. Window light, white board on the left for fill bounce, and a little flash on the camera with a lumiquest diffuse bounce. ISO 200, can't remember the other settings. Somewhere around 50mm. The only PS work was some contrast adjustment, and the addition of the vignette filter.

Thanks! I am using this part of my house as a setting for pictures...it works pretty good, it's my dining room. This baby boy has the prettiest hair, and is just turning one. His dad says "cut that hair", but it is just too pretty! #933932
